What are the defects?

The clutch assembly may overheat as a result of excessive clutch slip. This condition could cause the clutch pressure plate to crack and/or fracture, which could damage the transmission assembly, allowing transmission fluid to leak.

What are the hazards?

Leaking of transmission fluid in the presence of an ignition source can lead to an engine compartment fire.

What should consumers do?

Ford will write to owners of all affected vehicles. Owners are advised to contact their nearest authorised Ford Dealership for inspection and rectification.
